Norah Jones's quotes

  • I don't always know where to put my hands; sometimes it is endearing, sometimes not.
  • [asked by Katie Couric how she felt after sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards] I felt like I went to somebody else's birthday party and I ate all their cake without anybody else getting a piece.
  • [on the effects her success has had on her life] I just do the same stuff I always did. I have a bigger apartment--that's the main change.
  • I'm not melancholy; I'm a happy-go-lucky person, kind of silly. I like funny things. I have a lot of energy. I tend to like music that's mellow, though.
  • Without a piano I don't know how to stand, don't know what to do with my hands.
  • That's been the coolest thing about all this - I get to meet people that I worship!
  • I don't try to sound like anyone but me anymore. If something is out of my element, I try to avoid it.
  • With the first record I was very overwhelmed - a scared little chicken because I felt like people were staring at me and I didn't have anyclothes on or something. Now, people aren't really staring at me, so I'm able to be more comfortable with myself.
  • I've never wanted to portray some theatrical character or role. I'm just me, take it or leave it.
